Our member Carbon Clean has achieved a fabrication milestone on Ørsted’s FlagshipONE project, developed by Liquid Wind, one of Europe’s largest commercial-scale eMethanol facility under construction. The first equipment has been mounted on the structural steel of the first module, marking the start of the module assembly process. Once operational, Carbon Clean’s technology will be able to capture 70,000 tonnes of biogenic CO₂ per year for Ørsted’s facility in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden.

Carbon Clean’s CaptureX semi-modular technology for this project is being fabricated at Schwartz Hautmont Construcciones Metálicas’s site at the Port of Tarragona in Vila-seca, Spain. This demonstrates the economic benefits that carbon capture brings to the local supply chain, both in Vila-seca and beyond.

FlagshipONE will be Ørsted’s largest commercial-scale Power-to-X facility and is expected to be operational in 2025. It will supply up to 55,000 tonnes of eMethanol per year to the shipping industry, which accounts for around 3% of global carbon emissions today. Further, FlagshipONE has plans for several additional plants in the Nordics.

Chair and CEO of Carbon Clean, Aniruddha Sharma, stated: “Carbon capture technology is essential in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors, such as shipping, but it also brings economic benefits through the development of local supply chains.”

Our member is headquartered in the UK with offices in the US, Canada, and India. They develop carbon capture solutions for hard-to-abate industries including cement, steel, refineries, and energy from waste. They have over 100 active patent assets across 18 patent families covering 30 countries, and have developed a modular technology, CycloneCC, that aims to scale industrial carbon capture deployment to achieve global net zero targets.
